What is a RDHAP? To practice in settings outside a traditional dental office, a registered dental hygienist can pursue specialized training to obtain a specific license as a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice (RDHAP). These alternative settings may include schools, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, private homes, or their own RDHAP offices.
RDHAPs provide the same professional preventive care that patients receive in a dental office, but at a location more convenient for the patient.
